"Under this sort of thinking, Volkswagen would be liable if someone drove a VW as the getaway car in a bank robbery"

That may be the case, but probably only if VW knowingly pursued bank robbers as customers (e.g.; in their ads they said something to the effect of "Perfect as a get-away vehicle!")

I'd bet the courts/prosecutor said something to the effect "As the 'administrator' of a TOR exit node, It's not unreasonable for the operator to expect illicit or illegal activity to take place, as the intent of TOR is anonymity", or something along those lines...

It may be a state to state thing, but here in Colorado:

Colorado law (C.R.S. 38-30-168)

  Associations are not permitted to prohibit the installation of solar panels on a unit or property which is owned by a member of the association. Any such prohibition in the governing documents of an association is void and unenforceable.

"However, any time the screening process is handled by H/R or non-technical management people, I rarely even get my foot in the door"

This suggests you need better inter-personal skills. Try joining a speaking group like toastmasters, or find local social groups in your area. Not only is it good networking, but you may pickup how non-technical people perceive you.

This process can check if this value is zero, and if it is, it does something child-like. -- Forbes Burkowski, CS 454, University of Washington
